Mobile Detection Assessment and Response System (1989-)
The Mobile Detection Assessment and Response System (MDARS) is a joint Army-Navy development effort to provide an automated intrusion detection and inventory assessment capability for use in DoD warehouses and storage sites.
Man Portable Robotic System (1999-)
Funded by the Department of Defense Joint Robotics Program, the MPRS program goal is to develop lightweight, man-portable mobile robots for operation in urban environments (indoor, outdoor and underground). The technical strategy calls for optimizing a realistic and robust solution to an appropriate set of articulated user requirements, using predominantly off-the-shelf components. The capabilities and sophistication of these systems will expand with time as new technologies become available from various sources. The Unmanned Ground Vehicle/Systems Joint Program Office (UGV/S JPO) is the Program Manager for MPRS, while SPAWAR is responsible for all technical design and system integration.
